Life in 50mm: The Photographer's Lens

Tanya Nagar
Authors:
Tanya Nagar

The 50mm lens is for photography purists. It's cheap to buy, light to carry and gets amazing results. It also makes even the greatest photographers try just that little bit harder to frame the perfect image. As a result, it's the first thing anyone buys after their camera. Life in 50mm shares the greatest photos - and the personal experiences that led to them - from some of today's leading photographers. It also explains why they chose to reject complicated modern zooms and express themselves through the 50mm prime in the first place.

The Unexpected Joy of Being Single

Catherine Gray
Authors:
Catherine Gray

Single in your late twenties or, hold the phone, in your thirties or beyond? Oh hi! You're in the right place.Over a third of us are now single. With the single camp growing at ten times the rate of the actual population, it is now the norm to be single well into our thirties - the average marriage age for women is 35 and 37 for men. But nobody seems to have told society, romcom makers, songwriters, marriage-hungry mothers, 'tick-tock' uncles, our mates or us that.Cue: single anxiety. Love addiction. Spending hours scrolling through dating apps. Being inconsolable when he/she doesn't text. Humming 'Here Comes the Bride' when they do.Catherine Gray went through all of this. And then some. She took a whole year off dating to get her love-hooked head straight. How do we chill our boots about our single status? Detach from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic? And de-programme from urgent, red, heart-shaped societal pressure to find your 'other half*'? We know intellectually that single is far preferable to panic-settling, yet we forget that almost constantly. Why? Psychologists and neuroscientists tell us? Let's start the reverse-brainwash and locate our happily-single sanity, for good. Are you in?*Spoiler: you're already a whole person.Praise for The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober:'Truthful, modern and real' - Stylist'Brave, witty and brilliantly written' - Marie Claire'Not remotely preachy' - The Times'Jaunty, shrewd and convincing' - Sunday Telegraph'Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying.' - Alice O'Keeffe, Guardian(p) 2018 Octopus Publishing Group

Philip's Moon Map

Dr John Murray

Philip's Moon Map is a large-format folded map of the near side of the Moon. It has been specially drawn for Philip's by Dr John Murray, a research lecturer at the Open University, who is an expert on the lunar surface. The map is not only a highly accurate and clear representation of the Moon, but is also a practical guide for lunar observers.More than 500 physical features - craters, seas, mountain ranges, peaks, valleys and rilles (elongated depressions) - are named and indexed, and the landing sites of unmanned and manned spacecraft are also marked. The observer can thus readily identify objects seen through binoculars or a telescope, or select targets for a programme of observation.The chart includes a small map of the far side of the Moon (never visible from the Earth) and is accompanied by a practical guide to lunar observing. This concise and informative text describes the various types of feature to observe, illustrated with drawings and photographs. Tips are given as to the best point in the lunar cycle to observe the most interesting of these features. Guidelines on drawing or photographing the Moon are also included.Colour artworks explain the Moon's orbit, and why its phase (the proportion of the Moon that is visible from Earth) changes during the course of a month. Also explained, with the help of illustrations, are the path of the Moon during the course of the year and why lunar and solar eclipses occur.
